I am so in awe of ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' DrAchoo's ability to shoot ladybugs. These little critters do not readily go where you want them to. I'm also seriously lusting after a decent macro lens. This was shot with my "big" lens, and an extension tube.

Margie - should still have been front page for me - but 12th isn't bad I guess :- )

This is a great shot and I wouldn't change any of it.

Very nice! But the boarder takes tons from the photo.

Seriously though, nice macro

nice close up. i like the idea of something 'delicate' like a ladybug on the barb.

Great pic!

This ladybird changes the whole scale. This sharp bit of fence is a home for this small creature. A nice touch.
